We bought these costumes. Olivia was thrilled to be a ladybug in a pot, Taylor, not so much.
Hmmm... I seem to be missing something...
And here too.
Madeline was a cute little princess with a homemade crown, the dress was one we had from a previous year.
Lucas made an adorable cowboy.
Taylor was a great fairy princess. Olivia wanted to be a mermaid princess so I made the tie on fish tail and the star bikini. I thought it looked great with the white T shirt underneath it.2007
Madeline's wings, they were very sparkly. Taylor originally wanted to be an egg, then a hatching chick and then she fell on her head or something and wanted to be a hatching flamingo. I was able to buy a mask for this and then added the feathers, made the wings, the neck is made out of a pink boa and the egg shell bits were paper mache'. All of this was attached to a skirt I made out of pink fabric and some elastic. A black sweat shirt, pink sweat pants and pink shoes finished off the costume.
For Olivia I made the witch's robe, the hat out of paper mache' (although I would just say buy one, they are cheap and making one wasn't as easy as I thought) The belt and then we bought the socks because accessories are important, even if you are an evil type of witch.
For 2012 we have a corpse bride, Dracula, Cleopatra and Juliet (with her bottle of poison).
